A photo museum for the 21st century: As one of the worlds most successful photo museums, Fotografiska Berlin, located in the former Kunsthaus Tacheles, will attract Berliners and visitors from all over the world. The exhibitions of famous photographers and new artistic talents will be complemented by a wide range of events, a special culinary offer and a photo academy.
